Text Bands Giveaway!

Last month when I was at the EVO conference I got to take my cute little family and visit some of the sponsor suites.  One of the suites that my girls had fun in was the Hallmark suite.  Really, what's not to love?  They had books and pink bean bag chairs.  My girls were in book nerd heaven.

Amongst our swag treasures were Text Bands from Hallmark.  With some adult supervision and a lot of patience on the part of the wonderful Hallmark PR people, we got them programmed and on for some texting action.
The pic of my cute girls won us an adorable recordable book.  Love it!
And they love that I get to read them a bedtime story even if I'm not here at bedtime.
Which happens maybe once a month.  Or twice.  I'm a wild partying woman.

My girls were changing their message after almost every single text exchange.  We started out with the fist bump exchange but that inevitably turned violent and we then went for a more peaceful approach by gently bumping the text bands to each other.  CG was happy since I had put my text band on my "rock hand".  It was an unfair advantage.

The one thing that has stuck out for me is to send these with my kids to school.  With Babs starting kindergarten this fall I'm having some mommy issues.  And there are a lot of kids out there that are nervous about starting school and having a text band that they can push a little button on the side and have it scroll messages from mom and dad across the screen might make that adjustment just a little bit easier.  Of course, Babs doesn't really fall into that category.  She is counting down the hours until she can escape from mom's partially undivided attention and head off to a world full of kindergarten friends and learning.  I will be the one scrolling through the messages from my girls on my text band.  **sniff**


Not only are we lucky enough to have won enough text bands for an entire class room, but I also get to pass on the text band love to you.  I'm giving away a pair of text bands to TWO lucky winners.  And it's super simple to enter.   

For your main entry, just leave a comment telling me which fashion text band is your favorite.  Adding a compliment or two for me certainly won't hurt your odds.  Also, telling me how adorable my children are is always good.   

For additional entries you can do ANY or ALL of the following:
Just be sure to leave me a separate message for each entry so you get full credit.   The giveaway will run from right now until Sunday August 12 at 11:59 PM.  The winners will be notified Monday August 13.  But if I don't hear back from you within a couple days, I'll have to choose a new winner.  And you would be sad.  So be sure to check your email on Monday!

**This giveaway is sponsored by Hallmark.  All opinions, random thoughts and sadness about my children going back to school are my own.**

What a cool idea! Would be awesome for best friends, too. I'm loving the pink zebra band but you should have seen the look on my boy's face when he saw the Darth Vader band. It was *almost* as adorable as your girls. :)

I actually heard about these recently and thought my son might like them. I like the camo and zebra stripe bands best. Your daughters look super cute wearing them. I have the same color hair as your oldest too! : )

I like all of them. These are so neat. My fav is the blue camo though. But my daughters 1 loves the peace sign and the other the pink zebra print. I love the pic of your daughter in the highchair with the pink hair,that is so cute.

Candice said...

Very cool idea! First, Love the site! Your print is actually big enough I don't need my reading glasses. Your girls ARE adorable! My boys would love the Darth Vaders...My oldest is about to start kindergarten so I can sympathize with you :D
